Super Epic Video Game News
April 3, 2008 8:44 PM   Subscribe

Super Epic Video Game News. Several Channel 101 alumni are bringing their own distinctive style to game and tech journalism. Perfect for those who love video games, but hate the people that play them. The YouTube comments are an even split between impotent rage and people who get the joke.

For those who don't like Channel 101 or video game news, you have been warned.

Oh, and some of these maybe NSFW.

Not sure what I think of this particular website -- perhaps I'm not up on the jokes enough -- but I do love the recent crop of game posts on MeFi and heartily encourage the trend.

I LOLed at the "Greatest Player Ever" one.
I'm not sure the comments are an even split between people that get it and those that don't...

The videos are funny, but the SEVGN site is not quite there yet. It's basically The Onion for videogames and has potential.

I know these are all in jest, but the Tech Support #1 tip really did change the way I play Halo III

Agreed. I'd "right trigger-X-X-Y-back-start" her any day of the week.

I was skeptical at first, but some of these are genuinely funny. The "Energy Sword Brothers" definitely encapsulated the "fun" of enabling voice chat on multiplayer.

Was the last one staged? If not, it has become the greatest thing I've ever seen.

The rickroll effect is strong in these.

This is hilarious.

I read a few pages of comments for several of the Youtube videos and the levels of inappropriate rage are off the charts.

I'd like to point out that Mike McCafferty was in the movie IDIOCRACY.

And Dawn Cody is a talented actress with a superior intellect and excellent sense of comedic timing!
